Southeast Asian Peanut Noodles

Angel Slave


For authentic flavor, I use sambal oelek (a mixture made of chiles, brown sugar, & salt found in most ethnic groceries) in place of hot chili sauce.

At the Oriental grocer I purchase 1 8 oz package of flat rice stick noodles (buckwheat if available)

Directions Step-By-Step

Basic Stir-Fry Cooking Principle:
Preheat the skillet or pan on the stove (medium-high heat should work) for 3-4 minutes BEFORE adding the oil. This will allow the skillet the heat evwenly and keep food from sticking and burning
I am laying out the directions as though no one has access to the cooking condiment sambal oelick (the mix made of chiles, brown sugar, and salt). Those who have it - please use to the heat on this condiment is super high for many
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a non stick skillet (large wok - or spaghetti pot. Aded noodles stir to separate then cover and remove from heat. Let stand 6 minutes to soften. Drain & set aside.
Whisk together teriyaki sauce, 2 TBS hot water, PB & chill sauce in a small bowl.
If using a wok - now is the time to wipe it out,add sesame oil, and heat over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ginger, and stir fry 30 seconds. Add snow peas and fry for 3 minutes. Add tofu, and stir-fry 1 minute. Add teriyaki mixture and cook 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
Add noodles, and gently toss with fork 2-3 minutes, or until noodles are coated with sauce and heated through. Sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts.
Serve hot with lime wedges
